Joys Of The Leonard Cohen Soundcheck #7: Hearing Leonard Cohen & Company Jam
Attending a Leonard Cohen soundcheck1 is enlightening, instructive, and inspiring, but most of all, it’s fun. The Joys Of The Leonard Cohen Soundcheck series is a collection of individual instances that manifest this principle.

- The technical definition of soundcheck from Wikipedia follows: A soundcheck is the preparation that takes place before a concert, speech, or similar performance, when the performer and the sound crew run through a small portion of the upcoming show on the venue’s sound system to make sure that the sound in the venue’s “Front Of House” and stage monitor sound systems is clear and at the right volume and tonal frequencies.
